Weidmüller FieldPower® WIND Energy LED system for wind turbines


FieldPower WIND Energy LED systemVersatile system for use in the tower, hub and nacelle. – FieldPower LED lamps – robust, compact, durable and reliable even in the harshest of environments. – Wide input range of 24 V DC to 120 V DC.
Weidmüller's new FieldPower® WIND Energy System LED system offers convincing solutions for wind turbines: the system can be used flexibly in the tower, hub and nacelle. The compact FieldPower® LED lamps have a wide input range of 24 V DC to 120 V DC. These robust, durable, reliable components can be used even in extreme environments. Consisting entirely of pluggable modules, the system is based on two LED variants: FieldPower® MONO LED, which produces non-directional light that illuminates entire rooms and larger areas such as the nacelle, hub and platform, and Field­Power® DUO LED, which directs light upwards and downwards to illuminate the ladder and tower walls. There is also a control unit: the remote monitoring system displays status messages from the lighting system and can be easily integrated into existing wind farm systems.

Weidmüller FieldPower® WIND Energy LED system for wind turbines: the system comprises the FieldPower® LED lamps Mono and Duo, pre-assembled cables, a control unit, a DC/DC converter and a complete power system. 

An optical alarm system in the tower can also be controlled. Last but not least, there is a DC/DC converter that transforms the supply voltage from 24 V DC to 120 V DC. The low power consumption of the LEDs causes only a slight loss of voltage along the cable and permits large power bus ranges with smaller conductor cross-sections. In addition, Weidmüller puts together a complete power supply system for its customers, customised for specific application conditions: everything from the power supply unit and a UPS with a central battery to suitable add-on modules. On request, Weidmüller also supplies pre-assembled cables that are ready for installation and equipped with proven Weidmüller connectors.
